To ask the Secretary of State for Justice what steps his Department has taken on implementing the recommendations of the HM Inspectorate of Prisons report entitled the Mental Health of Prisoners: Thematic, published in October 2007. (204306)

I refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave to the hon. and learned Member for Harborough (Mr. Garnier) on 7 May 2008, Official Report, column 987W.

The report ‘The mental health of prisoners’ thematic (HMIP, 2007) made a number of recommendations about improving mental health care in prisons. The Department of Health is preparing its response to all these recommendations.
